Mentality

The various moments in my life, along with advice, motivations and fashionable perspectives. 

 Cleric - Yukijoro

The focus of my writing style under the influence of my inner muse yukijoro is "mentality" and the overall reflection of the emotions that lie deep within. My hope is to process the life lived and the life I hold now. Of all my writing voices, this is the most true to the me now, I am still the woman who is healing from her winter. This facet has the most presence on my blog, as she is the one reflecting on my journey and experiences. 

You can catch this guide on my main blog sharing my wisdom, experiences, and reflections.

A Note from Jade

These glimpses of my life like chapters of breathing memoir vary from topic to topic. Some are heavy, and some are light please keep in mind that these are moments from my life past, present, and dreams for the future. -Jade

Chapter 30: Speaking Loud

I am capable of courageous conversations. I can step outside of my anxiety, pride, and address a problem. I don’t regret initiating the conversation about my salary; it meant I valued myself and what I have to offer high. I need to remember that being the kawaii boss will have its up and downs and that speaking up or against something has its reward.

Chapter 22: Fighting the Facebook Silence

I worry that in a market that caters so heavily to white silence, the tools so easily accessible yet only marketable for white people will continue to limit the content that circulates in the general public. While i slowly fade from Facebook as a tool to market my content and grow my brand, I don’t stop seeking others whose work is not heard of. Hitting a share button takes all of five seconds, if your wifi is capable it's easy to do. Yet so little people do so, adding to the silencing of creatives of color.
